Global aviation services provider ASL Aviation Holdings, and Reliable Robotics Corporation, a leader in autonomous aircraft systems, have confirmed that ASL has placed a deposit-backed order for 30 units of the Reliable autonomous flight system for the Cessna 208B Caravan. The deal secures early delivery slots and enables ASL to be a leader in the adoption of safety and efficiency enhancing automation. ASL and Reliable have been working together since 2022 to bring advanced automation and remote piloting into ASL’s operations and have a shared goal of expanding the program to include additional aircraft types in the next 12 months.

“We are constantly developing and upgrading our capabilities to match and anticipate our customers’ requirements. Automating the Caravan with Reliable’s technology will enable ASL to deliver safe and reliable air cargo transport services at a lower operating cost to our express freight, postal and e-commerce retailer customers,” said ASL Aviation Holdings Director, Hugh Flynn.

ASL Aviation Holdings is a world leader in wet-lease airline operations for major express freight, postal and e-commerce companies. The ASL group consists of eight airlines based in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, operating over 160 aircraft.

Reliable Airlines joins top 5% of part 135 cargo operators

Reliable Airlines, a cargo airline based in Albuquerque, today announced its Safety Management System (SMS) is in full compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. The Safety Management System Voluntary Program (SMSVP) is optional, and the airline’s achievement in attaining FAA acceptance, or “active conformance,” demonstrates its strong commitment to aviation safety and establishing the requisite infrastructure to meet these rigorous standards. Reliable Airlines is building an airline with sophisticated safety systems, procedures and technology to safely scale.

The Reliable Airlines SMS provides guidance and procedures that cover operations, flights, testing, engineering, environmental health and safety, cargo services and airspace management. The FAA completed a review and validation of the associated manuals and processes before formal acceptance.

“Ensuring the highest levels of safety has been our top priority since day one, and it’s instilled in our culture,” said Tom Klassen, President and Director of Operations for Reliable Airlines. “Our dedicated team completed the SMSVP process from application to acceptance in less than 90 days. We could have not accomplished this without the support of our partners at the Albuquerque FAA Flight Standards District Office.”

The airline has a fleet of five Cessna 208 Caravan aircraft and operates daily cargo flights from Albuquerque Sunport and has near-term plans for aircraft and route expansion. Reliable Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliable Robotics, which is focused on developing and certifying aviation safety-enhancing technologies, including auto-land, auto-taxi, and auto-takeoff, as well as high-integrity navigation and remote piloting capabilities. The Reliable autonomous flight system is aircraft-agnostic and will be deployed first on the Caravan.

Reliable Airlines expands hangar, facilities and opportunities in Albuquerque

Reliable Airlines, a cargo airline based in Albuquerque today announced a new 10,000 square foot hangar and facility. 

Representatives from the New Mexico Congressional Delegation, the City of Albuquerque, Sunport International Airport and the Chamber participated in the unveiling.

The airline hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week attended by esteemed guests including federal, city and state officials, and airport and chamber executives to mark its expansion at Albuquerque International Sunport. The aerospace sector locally is thriving, and employs nearly 16,000 professionals, contributing $2 billion to regional GDP in Albuquerque.

"Throughout my time in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, I’ve worked hard to position New Mexico at the nation’s centre of innovation and leadership on advanced technologies,” said U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.). “The important work Reliable Airlines is doing in our state to improve aviation safety and strengthen national security is crucial to helping us achieve that goal. I look forward to continuing our work together to connect underserved communities to new opportunities, grow our economy, and support careers New Mexicans can build their families around.”

"New Mexico's 1st congressional district plays a pivotal role in pioneering innovative aerospace technologies that move our nation forward," said U.S. Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury (D-NM). "Encouraging and attracting young people to careers in STEM is a priority of mine, and the advanced automation technologies that will be part of the Reliable Airlines fleet represent a bright future for aviation in Albuquerque."
